Abstract

A new high-yield preparative route to (por)Ru(NO)Cl compounds (por = porphyrinato dianion) from reactions of (por)Ru(NO)(alkoxide) precursors with boron trichloride is reported. These ruthenium nitrosyl chloride complexes are known to be useful precursors to (por)Ru(NO)-containing derivatives. The crystal structure of (OEP)Ru(NO)Cl (OEP = octaethylporphyrinato dianion) shows that the RuNO linkage is linear. The redox behavior of the (por)Ru(NO)Cl compounds has been determined by cyclic voltammetry. Analysis of the data reveals that the first oxidation of the (por)Ru(NO)Cl compounds is porphyrin-ring centered.
